Quoting Mr's&Family*:" Ive heard a lot of ladies say there second L&D was much faster then their first. Was this true for you? ... [snip!] ... (dilation wise)? Was pushing easier with your first or second? You can add anything else you want, too Just curious "
Quoting Just Ames:" I was naive to think #2 would be easier because that's what everyone says. My first labor was long and ... [snip!] ... I had to have a c section. He was smaller than my first son Labor is just so unpredictable. Even if you've done it before."I broke my tailbone with my first too - she was 9.5 lbs and 21" with a head in the 99th percentile, plus she wasn't in the correct position. Not sure how I managed such a fast labor with all that going on.
Quoting Mr's&Family*:" <blockquote><b>Quoting awesomebrandi:</b>" I'm curious on this as well, since everybody ... [snip!] ... & a horrible experience. I'm hoping this time around its just as short or shorter & he just comes right on out like nothing!"Yeah, I was hoping this time he might be slightly smaller.. but after seeing the 3D sono this last weekend, I don't think that's happening. I think he might actually be bigger. :| So, I'll take the same length labor.. I just don't want to break my tailbone again, because it took forever to heal.
